A simply worded text a€” accompanied by the author's own clearly drawn diagrams and other illustrations a€” covers Clinker, Carvel, and fiberglass construction; plywood boats; molded veneer hulls; internal work; rudders and tillers; spar and oar making; basic ropework; details for installing an inboard motor; and ventilation, gas, and water installations. First published nearly a half century ago, Blandford's book remains an excellent guide for both beginning and veteran woodworkers.This clear, concise guide contains the essential information needed to a build sturdy, seaworthy craft with only two hands and the most basic tools.
